to be the law until 2004. the restriction on the sale of magazines that hold more than ten bullets at a time. that bill will now go to the full senate. and so far, no republicans have said they will support it. in debating it today, though, something kind of amazing happened in the senate and we have the tape of it. i want to show you the tape and what's going to happen here at the beginning is that you will see the republican senator from texas ted cruz, freshman senator giving a little lecture about what he thinks is important in this discussion. this lecture specifically to senator dianne feinstein, but bear with me. sit through the lecture for a second because what you're watching for here, what you want to see is the reaction to the lecture. watch. >> if i might pose a question to the senior senator from california. it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. the term the right of the people when the framers
it personally, and as a matter of policy and law. embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. to deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons, solely on the basis of who they are, and who they love is to deny them the chance to live up to their own god-given potential. >> one of the things that she said in this video that gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights, which is an echo of her famous declaration at the international women's conference in beijing back in '95. where she really stirred the fires in international diplomacy as first lady by declaring women's rights human rights. >> and that was controversial back then. that was seen as a sort of revolutionary statement, the state department was nervous that she said that. they didn't really want that to happen. i think we will be looking back ten, 20 years on the notion that gay rights are human rights and think, well, duh, the same way we think about women's rights now. >> a real generational change certainly in the republican party as we w
, and control of this new gop treasure trove of data. >> this is where the campaign laws play a very important part. an outside group like american cross roads can't coordinate with a candidate so it doesn't make sense for a data project where you can give data out. it doesn't make sense. the rnc has it right. it needs to be with the rnc. they're talking about sourcing with it other group like the guy from heritage but i think it has to be run from the party. i think that has more to do with campaign laws than maybe that person who was quoted thinks. >> one of the most interesting things i thought to come out of this report, an official endorsement of immigration reform. at least it says in part, we are not a policy committee but among the steps republicans take in the hispanic community and beyond, we must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. if we do not, our party's appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only. is this another one where they will be butting heads with some of their own rank and file? >> not if the rank and file read the totality of that d
muffins and mimosas so you can question the chooch about the ultrasound law while dining on a corn muffin. and the united versions versus the united states. the end run around the american way of life. i think that one is about bike lanes. but this was the item on the agenda that caught my eye as soon as the cpac schedule was released last month. too many american wars? should we fight anywhere? and can we afford it? now, that is legitimately fascinating. it was ten years ago this week that republicans and conservatives led the charge, and led a lot of democrats to go along with them to invading iraq. because they argued, you know, wmd, smoking gun mushroom cloud, whatever, let's just go to war. but now, ten years later at cpac, conservatives asking each other, asking themselves whether we as a country might be going to war too much. them asking themselves that question is really interesting for our national politics around war and peace. as they become increasingly dislocated from standard republican and partisan axes on those subjects. are we fighting too many american wars? what

] >>> laws designed to combat voter fraud are popular with one particular demographic, the one that lost the white house in november. today, those forces are arguing before the supreme court that an arizona voter fraud law is so important its stringent documentation requirements so necessary that we should forget that federal law trumps state law. indeed. to understand, just how popular these laws are with conservatives, watch how the crowd at cpac responded to south carolina governor nikki haley when she mentioned her own state's voter fraud law. >> every election in our state now requires photo i.d. before you vote. >> joining us now is democratic congressman elijah cummings of maryland. welcome, sir. >> it's good to be with you. >> what is your response, sir, to hearing the crowds cheer like that for voter i.d. laws? because that line about voter fraud got a bigger response even than her line trashing the affordable care act. >> first of all, martin, i believe that voting is a right. and it's something that is afforded to all of our citizens and we should not be doing anything to prev
the governor of colorado signed an important gun safety bill into law, a series of bills into law. the new laws limit ammunition magazines and requires universal background checks to be paid for by gun customers themselves. they followed new york who just over a month ago became the state with the toughest gun laws in the country. outlawing magazines with more than seven rounds and gun safety is a national problem but the states are leading the way. none more than the state of new york. joining me now is the man who played the pivotal role in getting those laws passed, new york state attorney general eric schneiderman. mr. attorney general, welcome back to the show. you had a top law enforcement official in one of the biggest states in the country. tell us how you managed to get things done what congress so far has not been able to do. >> i think we ought to give credit to my colleagues in government and really on a bipartisan basis in new york, i think people seized the political moment. it was a galvanizing force and the bill that the governor and senate and assembly passed and i'm now defend
of the president's health care law. >> something we're not giving up on. >> same old stuff. >> we're not giving up on destroying the health care system for the american people. >> what? >> we are not giving up o n destroying the health care system for the american people. >> we don't like this law. >> somehow magically maintains savings of obama care. >> please explain that to me. >> it is impossible. >> that doesn't make sense. >> recall if you will campaign 2012. >> $760 billion. >> $716 billion. funneled out of medicare by president obama, we are going to stop it. >> they're not restoring those. >> treating this fake charade like a budget. >> unrealistic. >> uncompromising. >> la la land fantasy. >> like fiction for rand than it is a budget. >>> tonight, president obama had the audacity to suggest that washington's holy grail, a balanced budget, is not actually the holiest thing you can pursue in government. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget. >> right. >> and says he is challenging you to come forward with a budget that reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. my goal is not to
is in the business of making law. the supreme court interprets the law. they strike down the law, they strike down the law. the tests in heller with respect to unusual weapons, to other things, i think do not cover -- in other words, they cover an exemption for assault weapons. >> is that true, cynthia? the supreme court ruled in favor of assault weapons ban, as pointed out a few moments ago. >> exactly. >> i guess you can have the right to carry in d.c. which i don't agree with, but you can do it. >> there are absolutely no rights in the bill of rights that are absolute, as sam said earlier, and the assault weapons ban was in effect for a decade. no one said, at least the supreme court didn't say it was unconstitutional. heller has come along since then, but heller does not say all assault weapons must be legal. it says that authorities may, in fact, pass laws restricting gun ownership. >> in fact, that bastion of liberal thinking, justice scalia said that you can't have regulations on guns. i mean, i don't understand what the argument is about. conservative members of the court saying it's okay
about what the second amendment is and what it is is not. so did ted cruz not go to law school? has he ever been to law school? >> i believe he went to harvard law school. do they teach law there? >> did they teach ted cruz to read what the supreme court said, especially in the landmark, the landmark decision regarding second amendment rights over 200 years was written in 2008. i'm just wondering why would he use his seat on the judiciary committee if he went to harvard to -- to -- to put forward a willfully ignorant statement about this bill violating the second amendment, because it does not. and ted cruz knows it does not. so who is he playing for? is he playing for -- for -- for people who can't read, for illiterates? i don't understand. you know, a lot of people out there that support ted cruz's position that will say, this is not a violation of the second amendment, however, i have real concerns because you take this first step, the next thing you know they are trying to overturn heller and try to get my shotguns and try to get my hundreding rifles. i don't mean to go on and on h
court is hearing arguments over critical case that could influence voting laws across the country. they're considering an arizona law that tries to keep undocumented immigrants from voting. the voter-approved proposition 200 requires all state residents that they show proof of u.s. citizenship before registering to vote. a federal appeals court blocked that provision saying it violated federal voting laws. four other states, alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee have similar voter registration requirements. and another 12 states are considering such legislation. i'm joined by congressman raul grathala, a congressman from arizona. lawyers from arizona are asking to reinstate that 2004 law requiring residents to show one of the following, a driver's license issued after 1996. a birth certificate or a passport. now, supporters are saying that current law isn't strong enough, only require aring one to promise basically under oath that they are a u.s. citizen. what's your thought about this? >> well, you know, and all this after i think after associated press found numerous investigations i
is law of the land and being enacted in over 20 states, conservatives can't seem to let it go. >> this law is a disaster. >> anybody who thinks we've moved beyond it is dead wrong. obama care should be repealed, root and branch. >> and i want you to know, we're not backing down from this fight. >> so if americans are clinging to any hope that the rest of cpac might result in triumph of thought or reason or anything new, our best advice would be -- do not hold your breath. rick santorum is about to speak, mitt romney is due up in an hour and sarah palin will take the stage tomorrow with one of the longest speaking slots at conference, joining us from washington now is former rnc chairman, was your head hung in shame just now? msnbc political analyst michael steele. >> were you literally just grabbing at your brow, like how can it be that sarah palin has gotten one of the longest speaking slots, chairman? >> no, you came to me just as i was sneezing. >> oh. never mind. let's open it up to the panel. i'm kidding. but chairman, look this morning i think a lot of people who are for
? >> you know, my dream was probably always to go to law school. that would be a dream. but i just take it as it comes. see how it goes. >> do you have any regrets. do you worry about the future? >> no. once i made the decision and you know, i feel good about it and feel good about the way it turned out, so no, i don't have any regrets. it turned out exactly the way i would have hoped it would. i will move forward and play it by ear and take it as it comes. >> again, to reiterate, why did you do this? why? why would you put yourself out there like this? >> you know, like the people need to hear what someone really believes. they needed to hear what he really thinks. he was just saying the absolute opposite in public. and i just felt like that, you know, just watch him on tv and that just wasn't what he was saying in public. so it just -- everybody needed to hear that. >> so you knew you had a unique seat in history as to what had been said. >> yeah, i thought it could be a game-changer. i thought maybe he would leave the campaign at that point. >> okay, scott prouty, thanks for your tim
on repealing the president's health care law which is law of the land, being enacted in over 25 states. is he a serious political figure, a serious policy figure in republican circles? >> he is a serious political figure and a serious policy figure in the republican party, but the governor's criticism about the budget is spot on. its formulations are not based in reality. obama care has been validated by the court, it was validated in the last election, it is the law of the land. i think that it is important for republicans to communicate clearly to the country about the costs and future of the interest payments on out of control spending, that's an absolute threat to our future prosperity. we're going to have to deal with that as a country. when you put forward the plans and proposals, particularly when you're the minority party, particularly when you're out of power, it ought to be a document that's grounded in reality, in truth telling to the american people. >> reality and truth telling, endangered species in some circles. steve schmidt and howard dean, thank you both for joining me. >> y

this law before. snyder and his republican allies came back in and rammed it back through. today the governor and i were both guests on "morning joe" and i pressed him on this very issue. >> governor, i think no one can defend the condition that detroit is in but how do you deal with the fact that the customers feel disenfran is chew disenfranchised decision and undermines people's right to vote because the only one who voted for kevin was you and this is something that is very disturbing that you have governors undermine the willing voters. there was a referendum last year opposed to this kind of action. you did it anyway. >> reverend, if you look at it, the old law went away. it was in response to the issues and i was elected by the people of michigan. and i think that's critically important. the citizens of detroit are my customer. >> what if i'm in detroit, reverend charles williams and others are raising this, in all due respect, and i vote for city council and mayor to represent me during the financial crisis, now you bring in someone unelected, like in pontiac we had someo

it on the ballot and try to write into minnesota law, which ten years later, just about, we voted that down. i'm proud of that. minnesota citizens looked at that again this fall because legislatures did vote to put it on the ballot. it was wrong nine years ago and i think it was still wrong. voting in that circumstance, not just for me, but for our state, i'm hopeful now for our nation that people will recognize we shouldn't be discriminating and have laws on the book that discriminate against our friends, our neighbors and fellow citizens. >> what you did yesterday in minnesota is something i have never seen. it wasn't just a public apology, but you did it in the body you used to work. what was it like to go back in there in that role and tell them what you had to tell them? >> it was very freeing. the emotion came because it literally occurred to me as i sat down, this is a public apology. i was there to say trust me when i tell you that you can vote your conscience and your own compass and be okay. i should have done it. i regretted i didn't do it. it was -- it was very liberating quite hon
from marry, and how does portman reconcile his own beliefs with the state law? >> i suspect that he now opposes the state's law and you would have to ask him in order to get a definitive a answer, and i would say that he opposes his own state's law, because it prevents marriage between same sex couples, yeah. >> and he was considered to be a running mate for mitt romney, and he said he did reveal his son's sexuality in the vetting process, and beth myers who conducted the vetting process said it did not pose an issue. but wouldn't it have posed some discussion. >> it don't believe so, because back in 2004 when we had george bush and dick cheney running for re-election, george bush took his stance with regard to same-sex marriage, and dick cheney is in favor for same-sex marriage and has said so publicly for many times. but in the case of mitt romney, because there is always more suspicion about him among the social conservatives maybe something that would have played more of a role there than the 2004 campaign, but i highly doubt this had anything the do with why senator portman was not
governor of colorado signed into to law some of the toughest safety measures of the country. >> the new law extipds background checks. it closes a loophole that had exempted firearm sales at gun shows from back ground checks. the laws also limit the size of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds and eight shotgun shells. >> but even that progress was tainted by tragedy. he signed the legislation just hours after members of his own cabinet was shutdown. he was gunned down in his own home last night. clemens was fate lay shot after answering his door. police are still looking for his killer. earlier hicken looper mourned the loss. >> i think the cabinet is good with this, we go forward with our work. it's the kind of thing that tom would have understood, i think. and, and would have supported. >> yet republicans in that state say they will fight the new gun laws. >> it proves that we have the gun control governor here in colorado. and the myth is busted that no one can any longer think of he him as a moderate democrat. >> today marks the eightth month anniversary of the shooting in aurora, colorad
